The Clash and its Reggae Connection:
When The Clash were recording their debut album in February 1977, they were asked to come up with an extra track. As big reggae fans, their answer was to cover Police & Thieves, a contemporary club hit by Jamaican singer Junior Murvin. The Clash gave the song their own edgy rock makeover, a move that kick-started Punk’s lasting connection with militant black music, and opened up the band’s music to a strong reggae influence.

Bob Marley, Joe Strummer and the Punky Reggae Party – Marley’s single Punk Reggae Party put a name to an underground phenomenon – the coming together of the Punks and the Rastas at the height of 70s social unrest. That era may be over, but the Punky reggae spirit still lives and breathes with Strummerville at Glastonbury Festival and now One Love Festival

Originally a Scratch production sung by Junior Murvin, the track’s cynical realism had helped it become a Punk anthem. At first listen, Bob and Scratch were startled by Joe Strummer’s harsh bark, compared to Murvin’s mellifluous falsetto. “It is different, but me like ’ow ’im feel it,” was Marley’s verdict, though. He liked the link between the two tribes of alienated, youth – Punks and Rastafari. “Punks are outcasts from society. So are the Rastas. So they are bound to defend what we defend,” Marley concluded. Shortly thereafter, named an underground social phenomenon

At the forefront of the UK Reggae scene for over 11yrs - Paving the way and setting the example - We are The Reggae People's Festival of un-dividing peace and un-conquering love - we create a reggae world that allows you to submerge yourselves within it completely - a reality where hope and love joins everybody into a combined and unbreakable positive force - where everyone is welcome and no-one's judged - an atmosphere of acceptance where there are no borders One People, One World

After 10 years of great events in the Home Counties we are really excited to be taking the Festival to the UK's spiritual home, to a mystical land engulfed in folk law, myths and legends - wonderful tales of magic and wonder including Stonehenge, Glastonbury Abbey and Tor - with unbelievable natural beauty, truly a "Gods own Country" of the lush rolling hills and valleys of Somerset. A place where the biggest and best Festival on Earth started “The Glastonbury Festival” (we have always thought Reggae is under represented at Glastonbury so we have taken Reggae to Glastonbury) With Glastonbury taking a year off in 2018 we thought the area needed some blessed up reggae vibes where we will introduce Reggae and Reggae Culture to a much larger audience -

This years presentation includes x 4 Nights Camping, a new Rasta Village, increased toilet and pamper facilities, increased children's and circus activities, more Healers in our dedicated Field of Love, a more relaxed laid back vibe even more spread out arenas with the emphasis on Nature and Peace. We are going back to the root of all festivals; a camping weekend festival dedicated to a better world
